Republican Senator From Kentucky Is An Idiot

Dude went to UK for crying out loud, and the perpetual putz couldn't even get his own ad right...

Oops. Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell features Duke in campaign ad, violates NCAA rules

Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell's bid to hold on to his Senate seat hit a snafu when 'award-winning filmmaker Lucas Baiano's' film, 'Rebuild,' mistakenly included Duke, of neighboring North Carolina, winning the 2010 NCAA title. The inclusion, as well as a clip from a Kentucky vs. Louisville game, also got the senator in trouble with the NCAA, which has a no-endorsement policy.


Mitch McConnell's UK Campaign Ad Goes From Bad To Worse To Deleted



Barry Petchesky

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell is up for reelection this fall, and yesterday he released a campaign ad to much fanfare. It featured some of the things that make Kentucky great, including what were supposed to be highlights of the state's two basketball teams celebrating championships. It didn't work out that way.

At about 1:09 of the video below, there's a shot of Louisville's 2013 NCAA title, and then...well, they're wearing blue and white at least. As first noticed by LEO Weekly's Joe Sonka, instead of the Kentucky Wildcats and their 2012 championship, it's actually a clip of Duke winning it all in 2010.
